Opened in July 2021, Parkdale is a 1,500-square-foot neighbourhood branch attached to McQuesten Lofts, a 50-unit community-building and architecturally-significant housing complex built by Indwell. Parkdale is HPL’s first Passive House-designed branch – an energy-efficient building that dramatically reduces its ecological footprint.

This branch provides Wi-Fi, public computers and printers, meeting spaces, children’s area and a location-based collection of new and best seller books, music and movies.
